Andritz offers bromine-enhanced mercury oxidation for emission reduction in European power plants
|Andritz has signed an agreement with VOSTEEN Consulting, based in Cologne, Germany, for exclusive sale of proven mercury reduction technologies to be used in fossil fuel-based power plants in Europe.|
Based on the so-called BREF (Best Available Techniques Reference Document) regulations of the European Union, harmful emissions (e.g. nitrogen oxide, mercury, etc.) from fossil fuel-based power plants must be reduced as from 2021. As a consequence, many European power plants now have to be upgraded in order to comply with this new regulation.
As one of the world’s leading suppliers of flue gas cleaning technologies, Andritz is now able to offer its customers tailor-made, highly economically attractive technologies that enable to fulfill the required mercury emission limits.
ANDRITZ and VOSTEEN Consulting have been partners in the field of mercury control and reduction since 2009, and several product innovations on emission reduction have resulted since then from this successful cooperation.rkj / 08/15/2018
